Massage therapy is known to provide relief from chronic pain conditions, relieve strain from overworked muscles and tendons, and encourage tight, short muscles to lengthen and relax. Dr. David Coberly and Dr. Urvi P. Vyas are trained in various massage modalities that go beyond the traditional spa massage.
Massage Therapy Focuses on Resolving Muscle and Tendon Pain
You may have heard of Swedish or Thai massages where the overall goal of the style is to release tension and soothe sore muscles. They are wonderful for someone who wants relief from overall aches and pain, but they do not always address the root of muscle or tendon pain. Massage therapy provided by a chiropractor focuses on finding sore spots, their cause and releasing the tension that is adding to the pain. The action used by the chiropractor is one that is designed to focus on the problem and relieve pain. The areas around the source of the pain are also worked on so they perform their role of support without causing more pain.
Various Types of Massage Therapy Focus on Different Issues
Different types of pain call for different types of therapeutic massages. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to massage therapy as each patient’s needs are unique. Following is a look at the different types of massage that a massage therapist at our clinic can apply.
